What Do Scottish Terriers and the Space Needle Have in Common?

They show kids Safe Routes to School, of course!

Let’s explain. McDonald International Elementary identified their top priority as new crosswalks across NE 54th St and NE 55th St. Students got to take part in a competition to design two new crosswalks, and one of the winning designs featured Scottie dogs – their school mascot!

The other cool new crosswalk is sooo Seattle!

The new crosswalks were installed this month and are being used by students to walk and bike safely to school. McDonald International Elementary is one of 31 Seattle schools receiving a Safe Routes to School project this year. Funding for this project was provided by Move Seattle.
